    Welcome to Messy Leadership:: A podcast for ultraordinary leaders in the midst of the mess.

    When we are aware of our personal WORLDVIEW, this moves us into a posture of humility and stoylistening. And living with active VULNERABILITY moves us to invite others into the mess of our story, building trust as the pathway to vibrant relationships within our organizations, and sparking the courage to lead effectively.

    The reality is this:: Every individual person ends up going somewhere in life. But a very small number of people end up going somewhere on purpose. The “on purpose” destination of our lives requires the cultivation of CLARITY in two areas:: identity and vision.

    In order to lead with CLARITY, every Messy Leader needs to be willing to walk the lonely road of identity development… because it’s through identity that we lead from a place of authenticity.

    Vision compels us to see the world with CLARITY and invite others into our narrative with hope and vulnerability.

    Vision fuels Messy Leaders to live and lead with faith. Vision acknowledges what COULD BE… anticipates what SHOULD BE… and establishes a direction toward what IS.

    In this episode, that’s the entire focus:: CLARITY.

    Let’s get right into it. Here we go.

    S1.E2 - Messy Leadership - Vulnerability

    Welcome to Messy Leadership:: A podcast for ultraordinary leaders in the midst of the mess.

    There is no way around it… if we desire to be effective leaders, the prevailing leadership research shows that messy leaders must embody something that none of us really wants to talk about, much less display in our lives on a regular basis. As leaders, we know we need to be strong, confident, and authoritative… But for deep trust to be established in our interpersonal relationships, a level of vulnerability is necessary.

    VULNERABILITY is the place where MESSYNESS at it’s most COMPLEX and challenging.

    Honestly, I would rather not open this brand new podcast with a topic so emotionally-charged and potentially polarizing, but there is really no way around this subject. Eventually, we will need to deal with the reality of the extreme tension that exists within each of us in regard to VULNERABILITY… so let’s go ahead, take a deep breath, and just get into it.

    Let’s get messy…

    S1.E1 - Messy Leadership - Worldview

    S1.E1 - Messy Leadership - Worldview

    Welcome to Messy Leadership:: A podcast for ultraordinary leaders in the midst of the mess.

    In this first episode of Season One, we are going to focus on a subject that impacts each of us holistically:: WORLDVIEW.

    If I asked you to describe your WORLDVIEW… what words would you use to explain the way you interpret the world around you? Would you use economic or political language? Would you describe concepts related to your ethical or religious beliefs? Would you speak of morality and social responsibility? Would you express the unalienable rights of all for “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”? Would you dwell on death or your view of life after death?

    WORLDVIEW is the FRAMEWORK through which we interpret the world around us. WORLDVIEW is the STORY of the world that operates at the CENTER of a person’s life. Every person has a worldview shaped by our cultural context and personal experiences. The study of worldview is a study in PHILOSOPHY (a set of ideals) and HISTORY (a period in time).

    And MESSY LEADERS tend to be the type of people who have a well-defined view of the world around them. We have reached some conclusions which allow us to be motivated to move through the MESSYNESS of life with firm conviction and captivating vision.

    Let’s get messy…
